Scouting for Food

They filled bags and fed the hungry!

(Allentown, PA)— The Boy Scouts of America helped the Allentown Rescue Mission this giving season by holding a food drive for our men, and donating bags FULL of supplies.

The scouts from 71 Macungie, 519 Macungie, and Allentown spent a Saturday collecting bags of food donations to help feed the men at the Mission. They also collected non-perishable food items and supplies on November 9th from 8 a.m. to noon.

The troops collected a grand total of 2,751 items!

The Boy Scouts have been helping the Mission for several years with this annual drive and we would like to thank them for all of their hard work and dedication to helping those who are in need. We would also like to thank all of those who donated food for the drive. You filled a bag and helped feed the hungry!

If you were not able to participate in this drive, feel free to stop by any of our six GIANT food store locations in the Lehigh Valley on November 23rd from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. to donate some supplies for our Thanks for Giving drive. For more information on our drive, visit: Thanks for Giving.

Since 1900, The Allentown Rescue Mission has fed multitudes of hungry and hurting men. Today we embrace all those experiencing homelessness with the compassion of Jesus Christ. We believe he has given us all a second chance in life-we’ve been saved, rescued, and now get to provide that same hope and renewal to others here in the Lehigh Valley and the surrounding communities.
